                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VALAMANTIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at GARBAGE 
PAIL KIDS, who went down to 2nd from 6th.  Life is tough.  Call it luck at the right 
time or bribes in the right hands, but the new team CM - SCORPIO scored a 4-1-0 
record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out for CM - ACHILLES, who flew up 11 points 
in the rankings after mashing ODER QUIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KIM NEUW was defeated by 
STELLA ARTOIS and drops 7 points.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost 
to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, and HARBERT KREIGH has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  
With HARBERT KREIGH clearing the throne, COVER-UP of ROSWELL takes a proud seat as 
VALAMANTIS' new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the VALAMANTIS arena.  Here's 
a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad FLOYD'S  BREWERY?  Big bad FLOYD'S 
BREWERY.  Big bad FLOYD'S BREWERY.  VALAMANTIS' afraid of the big bad FLOYD'S 
BREWERY.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  FLOYD'S 
BREWERY + Weapons That go Boom = DISASTERS + Avoid City.  Well, it looks like ROSWELL 
wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so it went for broke by challenging up 31 points. 
No guts, no glory.  I heard ROSWELL laughed all the way to the inn as its new point 
total of 87 was posted in the arena.  I guess beating SHLITZ really pays!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Proving again that VALAMANTIS is not rated 
G, HOBGOBLIN of the FLOYD'S BREWERY slew the warrior KARRI NOLIS in a rather bloody 
bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take 
your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
